Description

Many of us know and grow the blue version of this vertical salvia. We've now had success growing the white, as the centre of a pot, with Scaevola aemula 'White Print’, cascading over the edges, or as a vertical spire to rocket through the foliage froth of compact white cosmos ‘Sonata White’ or primrose yellow ‘Xanthos’. Like all salvias, it flowers for ages.

Care Tips

Grown as an annual this salvia is suited to container collections or as a summer border filler in a summer well drained position
